That Moment When You Realise …

… That this isn’t going to be a big book but needs to be three books, lol! OMG. Over 300 colour-coded plotted scene index cards for 7 main characters, and I’m not done yet. I had intended to start this when new settlers land on the planet and find other life, but now I realise this is going to need the journey there and the bit after the relief ship arrives. This is because of all the shenanigans of the characters … they never do what they’re told, lol 🙂

Ah well, it keeps me busy … I don’t know about sane, though!

Oh, and this from a gal who doesn’t outline or plot, LMAO … I guess old dogs can learn new tricks! 🙂

Wow!! You’ve certainly got your work cut out for you, Harmony!

I can’t even think that big. I’m terrified about writing two sequels, but am determined to do it.

LOL! That’s a lot of notes for a non-plotter 😀

Stories do seem to have a mind of their own. I’ve never plotted it out like that, but after the book I’m working on I just might.

This is what scares me about embracing new technology. In my head, scenes don’t seem nearly as complex.
